Why Pledge: Every time you donate blood, you are saving lives. Blood cannot be manufactured, and there is no substitute for it. It is in constant demand for accident victims, hemophiliacs, surgeries, infants, patients battling cancer and more. In addition, blood supplies need to be replenished constantly, as blood products have a short shelf life. With blood shortages occurring
worldwide, it is important to create a network of young blood donors who commit to donating regularly. Take the pledge, and commit to saving lives.
Sawayra is a youth-oriented global social club committed to saving lives by regularly donating blood. Through Club 25, members are encouraged to attend blood centers, learn about healthy lifestyles, and give blood regularly. Members can make new friends around the world, promote life saving and life changing practices, and most of all - have fun while saving lives.
Sawayra is Africa's gift to the world. The concept which originated as "Pledge 25" evolved into a full membership club in Botswana where it became Club 25, promoting the value of saving lives by giving blood through active participation and healthy lifestyle choices. The name "Club 25" was taken from the donors' pledge to "give 25 blood donations." The club became a huge success, and the idea caught on worldwide reaching over 65 countries and hundreds of thousands of members!
